DescriptionThe Sentinel boasts a 3 star (Hubbel's guide) trad route called Crooked Cross. 5 other trad routes are listed for the rock, and there is a seemingly new bolted line around the corner to the left of the first route, Spy Story. Some of the rock looks iffy, but Crooked Cross is clean and well worth doing. It has an easy walk off the top.
Getting There4.5 miles from the light at the junction of US 36 and CO 7 (Hubbel). There's a pulloff next to the river, and an easy low water crossing. You can't miss the Crooked Cross Crack high above you. Poison ivy is out there, but it didn't seem too bad. The quasi trail heads up to the right of Crooked Cross.
